Most children are probably familiar with the concept of a kaleidoscope.

All 2016 1 oz Proof Canadian Silver Canadiana Kaleidoscope Polar Bear coins ship to you housed in a maroon clamshell, the iconic display case of the Royal Canadian Mints proof coinage. Your clamshell and coin ship to you inside of a black beauty box to protect the condition of all pieces.
The new 3-coin program known as Canadiana Kaleidoscope uses various shades of translucent blue, tumbling glass, and repeating patterns to create the image of various polar bears dancing around the reverse side of the coins face.
Subsequent releases in this program will include the common loon and the sugar maple leaf, each of which will feature its own unique kaleidoscope design. Additionally, all the coins will have reverse designs that cover the entire reverse of the coin, from edge to edge, with no border.
The reverse of the 2016 1 oz Proof Canadian Silver Canadiana Kaleidoscope Polar Bear coin features the amazing imagery of countless polar bears in various positions spread across the reverse face. The kaleidoscope imagery draws the eye in while the beautiful hues of blue capture the imagination.
On the obverse of all Canadian Kaleidoscope coins is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majestys effigy appears on the obverse of all Canadian coinage, collectible and circulation alike, with a right-profile portrait created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt.
The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1980 to provide the newly independent nation of Canada with coining capacity for its own currency. Originally operating just one location in Ottawa, the federal capital city, a second facility opened in Winnipeg in the 1980s.
